Avatar f tn Hi, respiratory syncytial virus is a very common virus that causes cold-like symptoms, but can lead to breathing difficulties. Those who are more prone to develop serious respiratory infections as a result of RSV include premature babies and those born with heart or lung problems. Regards.

Avatar m tn Dear Laura Lee, Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a virus that can cause significant pulmonary as well as cardiac damage. Without having further information about your son, I can't say exactly what happened with him. I can say that myocarditis, which in children is typically due to a viral infection, causes damage to the heart most likely from both the virus itself as well as the body's immune response.
Avatar f tn can adults get RSV and how old are u when u stop being able to get it
593530 tn?1263847957 I brought Brody to his pediatrician last week because he was very congested. After a nose swab was tested it was determined that he has RSV. Since it's a virus it can't be treated with antibiotics, so she instructed me to get a cool mist humidifier and keep his nasal pasages clear by using saline solution. The only symptom he's had is the congestion. There's no fever, coughing, mucous coming out, etc.
537497 tn?1292553056 Two of my daughters have this after having RSV when they were babies. One of my daughters was hospitalized. Both now have asthma, which is basically what reactive airway disease is. It is usually triggered by a virus, cold weather or exercise. To my knowledge it is not serious. I hope your little man gets better soon. Have you googled Reactive Airway Disease to get more info?
Avatar m tn ENTA) announced that it has expanded its research and development programs within the company’s core focus areas of virology and liver disease to include new programs to treat hepatitis B virus (HBV) and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infections. Enanta also announced that the first subject was dosed in a phase 1 clinical study with EDP-494, its cyclophilin inhibitor for the treatment of hepatitis C virus (HCV).
Avatar m tn RSV ( Respiratory synctial virus) is an antibody test that detects antibodies against RSV virus thats related to a respiratory infection. Lets wait till other experts comment on your query.
Avatar n tn So I took my DD to the docotr yesterday due to severe chest congestion, she also has a very runny nose and a fever. Well he did a nose swab on her because he thinks she might have RSV. HAs anybody out there experienced with any of thier children or know of somebody who has. I am still waiting for the docotr to call with the results but she seems to be getting worse. I looked some onfo on the internet but you guys on here are so informative so I thought I would ask.
Avatar n tn Respiratory Syncytical Virus (RSV) is not a 12-week illness. What may have started as RSV may be something else right now. Reactive Airways Disease (RAD) is a state when a child has been wheezing and the cause is not necessarily defined. When this is short term associated with a particular virus, it is RSV. When this lasts for a longer period, it is often called asthma. The medications used most often for the treatment of this problem are bronchodilators (ventolin is one of these) and steroids.
377012 tn?1283965435 Well, for the 2nd time this year dylan has been diagnosed with RSV......i have no idea how he is getting it since none of the other kids around have it....not unless they are carrying the germ home from school....this drives me crazy! he already as really bad indoor/outdoor allergies and asthma...so what next!!!!
490418 tn?1209523379 SO HE WAS ADMITTED IMMETIATLY AND FLOWN TO THE NEAREST CITY..THERE HE WAS TESTED (+) FOR RSV, A RESPIRATORY VIRUS, WHICH IS WHERE WE ARE NOW, SO FAR HE IS DOING OK., BUT I CANT HELP BUT WORRY ABOUT HIM. _I NOTICED TODAY THAT HIS RIGHT EYE ( DOESNT OPEN AS MUCH )IS LOWER THAN HIS LEFT. AND I AM WONDERING IF THAT IS A LONG TERM PERMANENT THING, IS HIS EYE GONNA BE LIKE THAT FROM NOW ON? MAYBE BECAUSE WHEN HE WAS TAKEN TO THE ER HIS o2 SATURATION WAS SO LOW???
Avatar n tn My son is going to be 2 months old soon and a couple of days after he was born they told me he has RSV, i have been in and out of the hospital so many times and he dose not seem to be getting any better. I have read everybody stories and How they lost their loved ones and i am so scared that it might happen to my son. Please is there anything that i can do to prevent this from getting worse???
649670 tn?1314366634 They just kept telling me her swine flu and flu cultures came back negative and she probably had a virus on top of the bacterial infection. She just seemed to keep getting worse instead of better and on Saturday night she was struggling to breath and breathing really fast and making barking cough noises. We took her to the ER Sunday morning and they tested her and took xrays. She had RSV, Bronchiolitis and a partially collapsed lung.
Avatar f tn Take her to doctor, her oxygen level might be low, there is RSV a virus children get, she needs to get checked!!
Avatar f tn A teacher that I work with has a baby in the hospital with RSV. She emailed that if you baby has a cough with no fever, please take them to get checked for RSV. My DD is 6 months old and has had a chronic cough for a long time. It seems to get better and then starts all over again. I have taken to the doctor for it three times, the last time a week ago today. Everytime they check her really good and say it is just drainage from a cold. She has not had any fever and feels good.
127529 tn?1331840780 d call the doc too. our last baby caught his siblings cold and it turned out to be RSV - very common cold virus but dangerous for newborns. he ended up having to use a nebulizer for a few weeks to help with the breathing.
Avatar f tn I always thought that most babies with RSV were hospitalized. Isnt there something else they could give him to improve his breathing. So confused and worried. It seems the hospital thinks this is no big deal.
